CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The impact of last month’s chemical spill on West Virginia small businesses is the subject of a meeting in Charleston.

The meeting is set for Wednesday at the Charleston Area Alliance’s downtown office. Among those expected to be in attendance is West Virginia Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito.

The Jan. 9 spill of 10,000 gallons of crude MCHM, a coal-cleaning agent, in the Elk River tainted the water supply of 300,000 residents in nine counties for days.
